Not me. Anyone running 1.3 can upgrade :).

Please check with Simon. elf2ecoff existed to produce ecoff-format
kernels which PMAX proms would recognize. Som pmax PROMS versions had
much stricter requirements about the order of sections in a file than
bfd elf->ECOFF translation would give (and i dont think it' s just
libbfd bugs, but a failure on the pmax proms, but its been a long time).
